Posted in Events on August 12th, 2015 by admin – Comments Off on TECH TALK: Hal Software – Prototyping a batch process control system using ISA-S88 and ISA-S95
In this presentation Cormac Garvey – Hal Software, will discuss the concept of using prototyping for a batch control system. Prototyping is a relatively new concept in control systems, but is standard in many other industries. In this talk Cormac will cover off what exactly prototyping can be used for in process control, what are the benefits of prototyping and how one would go about using prototyping.
Cormac will then give a practical demonstration of how one would build a prototype of a simple batch process control system using the ISA-S88 design

Posted in Events on November 10th, 2014 by admin – Comments Off on “Functional Safety Standards Past, Present and Future”
Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork
Wednesday, 26th November 2014, 19.00
Over the last twenty years we have seen many standards applicable to machine and process safety. As technology evolves likewise functional safety standards evolve also.
More recently we have seen updates to major standards like IEC 61508 which will have implications to sector standards like 61511 for Process and 62061 for machinery Safety.
In this presentation, I will discuss how safety standards have evolved for both machinery related applications and process applications and newer hybrid applications.
We will discuss some of the more frequently used machine & process safety standards and take a look to where we can expect these standards to lead us in the near future.
